Singing guitarist
Public liability insurance of £10 million

I'm a Leeds based singer/guitaristand I perform across the North of England and further afield. I play cover songs from the '50s to date and where appropriate my original material too. I've been played on BBC Introducing in West Yorkshire, appeared as a Featured Artist on Love Leeds Radio, and performed on the Main Stage at The Aire Do 2013 alongside Man Can't Fly, Jon Gomm and Reverend & the Makers. I perform on a weekly basis at pubs, clubs, festivals and private events including parties, weddings, christenings and openings. "...a young singer/songwriter from Leeds,who showed good maturity in songwriting" "His voice had tinges of Alex Turner, and had lyrics to match". Lawrence Morgan - The Yorker
